Have you bought your tickets yet? Better hurry! Ticket sales for the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas Oct. 30-Nov. 2 are going gangbusters and E3 Spark Plugs will be there.
The trade association formally known as the Specialty Equipment Market Association is made up of dozens of automotive manufacturers, distributors, retailers, publishing companies, restorers, street-rod builders, re-stylers, clubs, teams, etc. And its annual show is the one that those in the specialty and vintage automotive industries look forward to.
Last year, more than 60,000 domestic and international buyers attended the show, perusing displays featuring upwards of 1,500 newly introduced parts, tools and components and taking in educational seminars and product demonstrations. This year, E3 Spark Plugs will be among them, hosting a booth in the dedicated Power Sports & Utility Vehicles section. We’ll show off our powersport, automotive and lawn and garden spark plugs, along with our new line of premium glow plugs. And we’re looking forward to hobnobbing with a few automotive celebrities including GearZ TV host Stacey David, three-time Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti, NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya, six-time women’s Motocross champion Jessica Patterson, Overhaulin‘s Chip Foose and “Master of the Fine Line” Von Hot Rod.
We’re proud to be a member of SEMA, a 46-year-old organization dedicated to assisting companies developing and selling specialty parts and accessories designed to make vehicles faster, safer and more stylish. SEMA also works to protect consumers’ rights by keeping close tabs on state and federal legislators, supporting those who push legislation that supports the industry, and putting up white-knuckle fights against pending laws that would infringe upon our rights. SEMA also stands up for consumers, who sometimes get hassled by car dealers that wrongfully charge for repairs on modified vehicles with the bogus claim that specialty accessories void warranties.
